Thuja plicata Holly Turner

May 19, 2013

This form of Western Cedar has a beautiful form, and could be more widely used in our landscapes. The way we grow it at the nursery is to stake it initially, allowing only one leader. Eventually, when the desired height is reached. It is topped ( cutting the leader), and then all secondary shoots that may try to resume dominance are kept cropped off. The picture demonstrates this technique.
